So incredibly beautiful shows ,

Love the show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!👨🏻‍🚀🚲🛴🚃🚋🚘🚖🚔🏍️🚑🚑

I love the show so so much please keep it up. Also the new episode of this has referenced minor league baseball teams names being related to the town or area, another example of this is the Tacoma Rainers which is a reference to the name of Mount Rainier🌲🌲🌲🪨🪨🪨🌱🌱🌱🪵🪵🪵💯💯💯💯💯💯💯

Amazing

Love it!

Akron Rubber ducks.

Just for your information, the Akron Rubber Ducks were named because Akron is the rubber city, where Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Firestone Tire etc. so I think it fits more in the “quirky“ names that are specific to the area. Love the show.
